RSPCA Victoria accepts, without reservation, the report and each of its findings and recommendations.
RSPCA Victoria commits to immediately begin the full implementation of every finding and recommendation that is directly within our power to implement, and begin discussions with other agencies to negotiate implementation of the remainder.
Actions that relate directly to the welfare and safety of our Inspectors in the field will be our first priority for implementation.
RSPCA Victoria’s Chief Operating Officer is accountable for the implementation of all recommendations in the report, and the Audit Risk and Finance Committee of the Board will oversee implementation progress.
We expect the majority of implementation will be completed by December 2017, and will report on our progress in our next three annual reports.
